6:15pm
there is a slight chance of it drifting to san benito and monterey county. clouds of another sort we are dealing with. it's a return of the marine layer stacking up next to the coast. currently it's dropped the air temperature down to 58 degrees in pacifica. it's now 70 degrees in san francisco. and we jump aboard chopper 5 high in the sky where we do have plentiful clear skies inland where today's highs were up to 102 in morgan hill, now 97 in concord and livermore, it is 90 in san jose. so out and about, numbers range from the low 60s to the high 90s still. tomorrow your headlines, patchy coastal fog for openers and then a slight cooling trend begins tomorrow. subtropical moisture as noted earlier around the yosemite area and the central valley. we are talking about tonight the clouds at the coast the clear skies inland temperatures, 40s, 50s, 60s. tomorrow with the weakening ridge of high pressure, numbers
6:16pm
begin to come down 60 in pacifica, 76 degrees in oakland. and notice the numbers away from the bay of water into the 90s still but out of the triple digits. outside number will be 96 degrees in danville. gradual cooling through the weekend. a deepening marine layer and temperatures low 80s at best on the weekend. that is your pinpoint forecast. thank you. when you get the receipt you will probably be hit with sticker shock at the grocery store. on the consumerwatch, julie watts says shoppers are going to have to dig deeper just to pay for the basics. >> reporter: according to the consumer price index grocery prices jumped .5% between april and may increasing the cost of most supermarket staples. for instance the price of bacon is up more than 8% and that's nothing compared to potatoes. all this has some shoppers looking for creative ways to save. have you noticed a change at the supermarket checkout. >> yes. >> reporter: when it comes to the price of grocery staples. >> they keep going up. >> reporter: but for some, the
6:17pm
increased cost of bringing home the bacon is no laughing matter. in fact, the price of bacon is up 32 cents and that deli ham is up 35. but the biggest increase when it comes to the american farm bureau's 16 supermarket staples, russett potatoes are up 43 cents since april. turning to discount stores is just one way people are countering the rising costs. >> we cook at home quite a bit. >> reporter: here are a few other ways to keep costs down. when grabbing that olive oil, skip the extra virgin. choosing a lower grade will help you save. and the same is true with oat- based cereal. take a store brand or go generic. most people to you should buy in bulk but worry about spoiled food so to keep the potatoes fresh store them in a cool dark placeta . sack of apples should stay in the refrigerator and the freezer is your best bet for bacon and speaking of the
6:18pm
freezer go for orange juice. use powdered milk for recipes. and skipping meat just twice a weak can save a pretty penny. with sirloin tip roast up 52 cents, a family of four can save $624 a year. now, prices for food eaten at home are up twice as much as restaurant prices. that has a lot of people eating out in spite of the tough economy. in fact, business for casual dining restaurants is up more than 2%. >> don't have to do the dishes. >> yeah. >> thank you. it is in everything from toothpaste to gum. the common ingredient that could be toxic to pets. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[ laughter ] >> you know, that's the only time he was in the water all week, guys.
